Blockstack’s Clarity smart contracts is getting a data boost from Chainlink’s oracle network
Blockchain platform Blockstack is integrating Chainlink as its go-to oracle solution for the Blockstack and Algorand-supported Clarity smart contract language. Blockstack devs will have access to any API, Sybil resistant nodes, live decentralized price oracles for DeFi and more.
Clarity smart contracts, which will ultimately provide Algorand and Blockstack with inter-chain communications, are also set to debut at mainnet launch.
Clarity was designed from the ground-up to be more secure, predictable, and reliable than other languages. It is a key aspect of the upcoming Stacks 2.0 upgrade and is already in use by developers in the Stacks ecosystem. The ecosystem of tools and integrations around Stacks 2.0 and Clarity continue to grow as an Arweave integration nears completion, and Algorand works to further support the language and future interchain communication, according to the Blockstack’s announcement on October 1.
“Stacks 2.0 is a unique layer-1 blockchain that has a native bridge to Bitcoin. Clarity smart contracts give new powers to our developers. High-quality data feeds from Oracles are an important building block for Clarity contract developers. Given our familiarity with and knowledge of Chainlink’s impressive team and technology, we are confident that this partnership and resulting Chainlink oracles will advance our shared ecosystem.” said Muneeb Ali, Co-Founder of Blockstack.
Integration work will begin right away, with progress updates provided throughout the process leading up to Stacks 2.0 mainnet launch, after which the functionality can be deployed on mainnet. The initial integration will revolve around integrating Chainlink’s widely used Price Feeds, but will likely evolve into a generalized oracle solution for Stacks 2.0. Both teams are committed to working with community to make Chainlink’s capabilities and the entirety of the Chainlink smart contract library available to users and developers in the near future.
